Nice museum

A lot of weapons and tanks and military planes that were used in war. History of humans is so sad and you can see it like a flashback through this museum.

This is a good place for history and military passionate people. A lot of Romanian armed-forces history and details on most important military events. It's a nice place to visit with children, and if the weather is nice you can visit the outdoor yard, full of heavy military equipment.

This is off the beaten path but I have found that the military museums of the central European countries are first class. Note small entrance fee must be paid in local currency no credit cards. The exhibits started off great BUT the exhibits after 1700's (including Balkan Wars, WWI and WWII and communist era were closed off (I think they... More

We got into the museum and followed what seemed like a reasonable line and went through the building and its displays.. after finishing the hour tour we went outside and were surprised with a huge military display including tanks (and a helicopter), missiles, AA and what not. The two seperate buildings behind the main building had a very nice uniform... More

Found this by accident it wasn't in our (disappointing) guide book and we loved it. We followed the receptionists directions and went down stairs and kept on finding more info about Romania (not just war) with loads of well described items. At the back in the garden is an abundance of guns; tanks; rockets & even a helicopter. And then... More

We went here to get a fix of 20th century Romanian history, only to find the exhibition closed for refurbishment. However there is an extensive collection of historical artefacts and modern soviet era weapons. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

One of the most interesting museums in Bucharest,at least in my opinion.I saw the military museum in Brussels and I can say this one is similar. Very big,the museum consists in a few different buildings,housing an wide diversity of weapons,starting with the Stone Age ones until our days, military uniforms,a few aircrafts including replicas of the ones from romanian aviation...
